Intech RV

Keep an eye on the galley slide out. I have read where a few have had to be replaced. It’s a PIA to replace, and can be done but you have to go in through the battery compartment. I am as gentle as can be making sure to pull the slide all the way out when deploying it. Then be sure to always push that red button to unlock the slide before sliding it back in place. If you have issues with the slide Intech will make it right. They build each Flyer in about 3-4 days...as per my conversation with Keith at the factory.
Be sure to not over load the rear receiver. I was told by Keith it’s rated for 200#, but now Intech (Brianne via an email) is saying it’s 100# likely due to people over loading them.
Good luck with your shake down..,our first two camping trips were seamless. We really like the ease of towing and maneuvering this little camper.

Good to know. I’ll bring it up then, as it’s hitting the frame of the opening when it retracts.

Also, I found this loose pigtail last night when applying loctite to the lag bolts for the AC unit:



Any idea what it’s to/for? I’ve taped the end so I don’t have exposed wire but it feeds into the structure and isn’t connected to anything on this end.

That wire does nothing. Sounds strange but this was the answer I got from Intech warranty service - Brianne. She said the factory normally puts electrical caps on it, but must have missed it during production?? I thought it was odd to see two bare wires staring at me as well.
She said cover it with black electrical tape or they could send me caps.

That's exactly what I did. No mention what it was for, though? Odd.

First trip done and in the books.

Towed it down to a place on Rehoboth Bay in Delaware called Massey’s Landing. My parents and their friends are down there for the week, so I loaded up the slide-out kitchen with beer and snacks and went down for a quick overnight with the wife and dog.









Verdict is that this is an awesome little unit. Will be ordering the magnetic screen for the back door, and I'm going to look into replacing the solid glass in the curbside door with a sliding window + screen as well for more overnight ventilation when not using the AC. AC is powerful enough to turn this thing into a meat locker, by the way.

It's solid as a rock with all the landing gear deployed, easy to set up, easy to tear down and drive off, and it pulls quite nicely with no sway or wandering. The JKU is not the most ideal tow vehicle (a transmission with more gear range than the 5-speed auto would be better), but it did well enough. I saw 13.6 MPG on the road tugging this tiny trailer.

Congrats and Enjoy! Great looking pics!
 
Added a Power Tank SS Mount and aluminum 10# tank today to the tongue box. Install turned out rock solid.
Uh oh, every little mod being posted again. 😁

And that 100 lbs is for a bike rack (or perhaps a cargo basket, that sort of thing) and not a trailer, right? You can only go by what the manufacturer rates it but I personally don't like a few things about that.

This is apparently...

…Just another idea for the rear hitch on the Intech. I added two telescoping square tubes welded to the trailer frame, then had a few “T” brackets made up to add additional support for a truck box. This essentially makes up three receivers that are easily removable and held in place with hitch pins. The swing away is from Rola which they sell separately from their cargo box if you don’t want that plastic

Almost all packed up and ready for a week at the grand canyon, leaving the dirt bikes behind on this adventure so lots of room!

Just curious what made you go with the aluminum tank. The website I checked showed less than a 5 lbs difference when full, and that’s comparing the Worthington 10 lbs Alu with the Worthington 11 lbs steel which holds .2 gal more propane. Good looking trailer BTW!

Thanks, very happy with it. Tongue weight can add up, Steel tanks will rust, and I just like the looks of aluminum so much better.

What is your weight limit on rear box?
 
You were very fortunate. I am thinking the back of my truck bed under my topper is where the bikes will be traveling. Out of the weather, out of sight.
A follow up to this post. We like traveling and seeing the sights while riding our bicycles through small towns. I added a base plate to install fork mounts for our bicycles on in the back of our TV. We got all of our camping gear stowed nicely in under the topper secure and out of the weather. Happy Campers.
